The Kitten and the Beast - by Bob Atkinson

The Kitten and The Beast
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson


18 Stoic faces told of a night back then
where simple want of usefulness
fell flat as facial bends

there in a setting of
tranquility prearranged
a group of souls tried to pretend
those words had meaning caged

yet, when those darling readers
who had practiced their good art
spoke strange metaphors
this hardly looked the part

no emotional conditions
no meaning universal
no grabbing of my soul
to attach quivers to my thistle

why do I harp on this
well, we need to revamp “us”
to better understand our place
in universal dust

and begin to gather form
to press on toward a future
where division doesn't cause
wars of famine and derision

life lies universal
not divisible in the least
in the end we're all the same
the kitten and the beast
